My wife and I stayed at the Kent House Bed and BReakfast during our honeymoon. The owners were very kind, and our room was modern and comfortable. The breakfast was very good as well. The B&B is conveniently located within walking distance of some good food and entertainment. However, the parking is on street and was difficult to find when... More

I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed my stay at Kent House! My best friend and I walked from the bus station with our luggage, so they let us check in early.

Convenient location right by main railway station, just a few minutes walk from city centre. Very helpful and friendly hosts. I had a triple room for single use - plenty of space, furnishings fairly basic but comfortable. Excellent cooked breakfast.

We spent our last night in Ireland with Lorraine and John at the Kent House B&B. What a wonderful experience! Rooms were large, comfortable, and clean. Breakfast was very good as well. We had an infant with us and John and Lorraine spent time playing with him, which he loved! The other reviews said the area was a little sketchy... More

The room and bathroom were in great shape with a view out back to the rail station. Best towels on a long trip staying in many fine places. The room was quiet--heard no train nor cars on the road in front. Breakfast was excellent. The hosts were as congenial as could be and quite helpful. One couldn't ask for better.... More

Stayed for 1 night during a tour around southern Ireland. Arrived by rail at Cork Kent station (in heavy rain ;-) so it was a very handy short walk to the Kent House B&B.

First of all, this place is really hard to find. The N4 through Cork forces you left before the b&b so you have to go PAST the train station and turn right and back track if coming from the East. Also, it appears to be in a rougher area, not to worry! The b&b is a short 10-15 minute walk... More
